This is a quick weekday meal, and only takes 3 ingredients! Serves 3-4
- 8 oz whole wheat penne pasta
- 8 oz green beans, trimmed and cut into 2″ pieces
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup prepared pesto sauce
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook according to the directions on the package. During the last 4 minutes of cooking time, add the green beans. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta and beans. Return them to the pot, and stir in the pesto sauce. If it is thick, add some of the reserved cooking water to thin the pesto enough to coat the pasta.
